Gray’s Crossing meeting next week

Truckee Town Council will hold a public hearing on Gray’s Crossing on Tuesday, accepting public input that the council will weigh to decide whether to certify the Environmental Impact Report and approve the specific plan for the project.

“This will be the major meeting for public input,” said Community Development Director Tony Lashbrook. “People should not assume that there will be another meeting.”

Gray’s Crossing, Truckee’s largest, single-development proposal since becoming a town, was approved by the Town of Truckee Planning Commission on Nov. 4. When it comes before the council on Tuesday, the first action, after hearing public comment, will be to determine the adequacy of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on the proposal. Gray’s Crossing is planned for a 757-acre lot of land off of the portion of Highway 89 north off Interstate 80.

The golf course planned for the development has generated controversy, and impacts of the project include significant particulate matter emissions and heavy traffic funneled onto Interstate 80.

While concerns remain, the proposal has received vocal support from agencies such as Workforce Housing Association of Truckee Tahoe, which applauded the project’s plan to create significant affordable housing.

“I still think that there is still a lot of public comment out there,” Lashbrook said.

The public hearing will be held at the Truckee Town Hall at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 16. For more information, go to
